Expect the NFL to Hand Out Loads of Fines for This

The Rams "suck as an organization."

It's a dramatic late hit, scattering the crowd on the sidelines as they scurry to avoid hundreds of pounds of hurtling athletes.

Then the crucial moment: It looks like St. Louis Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree pushes down the man he tackled, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., as he was trying to get up.

The move sparked a massive sideline brawl during Sunday's game.

"Expect the NFL to hand out loads of fines for this," wrote NFL.com's Dan Hanzus of the Sunday evening sideline brawl.

The players ejected from the game over the melee: Giants wide receiver Preston Parker, Giants defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins, Giants defensive end Damontre Moore and Rams tackle William Hayes.

As ESPN noted, the fight was just part of a spiteful series of events between the two teams, as they brought off-field dislike into the game.

Giants linebacker Jameel McClain was heard in the post-game locker room saying the Rams "suck as an organization."

For his part, Ogletree played the whole thing off like nothing happened:

What fight? I didn't have a late hit. It was a legal tackle. Whatever happened, just happened, I don't know. I tackled him in bounds and I don't know what else happened after that.

The Giants won the game, 37-27.
